The webinar provides a detailed overview of global compensation for human resources professionals who are new to the field, experiencing international business growth, or interested in learning more about multinational compensation programs. The webinar will concentrate on key concepts that are needed to manage effective global compensation programs. Discussions will include how to deliver fair and competitive compensation programs across the globe while increasing awareness of the key differences and requirements between U.S. and international compensation plans.

Important components of a global total rewards strategy statement will be discussed as well as how job analysis and job evaluation work within a multinational organization.
